How Can I know Production Order from WIP posting in FI

Hi Fellow experts.

I got an email from my end users in Canada complaining about non-realistic US profit center in one of the WIP postings (WIP P&L account).

However, I looked at the FI document which looks like a WIP transaction (CR WIP P&L and DB WIP BS). One of the line items shown a posting to a US profit center although the account that I was looking at is a (WIP) P&L in the Canadian Company code.

I didnt have luck in Tie the WIP document with the production order. There was no association in the FI document with any production order at all.

What could be the reasons of having different profit center in the WIP P&L account & how can i tie down the FI with what happened in production and controlling??

Thank you for you ideas in advance.

    Hi Ahmed,

    First check the FI document by which transaction code it was posted. Generally system will display the production order details in the long text of the GL accounts.

    However, as you said it was posted with wrong profit centre. First check the material master whether it was created with which profit centre and also check the production order. As you know we have assign profit centre to co.code and also check the US profit centre assignment to canadian co.code. in KE53.

      Dear all,

      You can check wip orders through below T-Code

      S_ALR_87013127 - Reports for Product Cost by Order -> Object List -> Order Selection

      in this report you can get wip amount in this report. I feel it is helpful to you.
